  1. Notification for Completed Tasks

    It would great if the creator of a task gets notified when the person it's assigned to completes it. I can't keep going back and forth and checking to see what's complete and ready for review, it would be very beneficial to my teams productivity to get a message or an email saying the task I assigned someone was completed.

  3. Planner - Add info or subtask to Task/Dividual

    Besides the main information in each task it would be nice to add your own categories (especially if its in a bucket). Add subtasks that allow you to assign a specific person without assigning the entire task.

  4. view charts and schedules on tasks assigned to me.

    Vharts and schedules can be viewed on individual channels plans, and all tasks assigned to me can also be viewed as a list, but it is not currently possible to get a chart or schedule view of the tasks assigned to me

  5. Lock a Task so that it can serve as a template for future tasks

    You should be able to lock a task so that it can only be edited by certain people, and then that task can be copied and used as a template for future tasks (with the same description, check-list items, etc.). If you had multiple template tasks (for tasks that repeat), then users could choose which template they want.

    This would avoid users accidentally changing/deleting template tasks that are already in Planner.

  6. Be able to import tasks from outlook to the Planner app

    The functionality of tasks in outlook is great as an electronic to-do list with reminders and Planner allows for good reporting on tasks, so it would be great if you could import outlook tasks into Planner to be able to give really useful MI on what you have on your plate and whether you are completing tasks timeously.

  8. Assign tasks using a tag

    Be able to use an existing tag within a team to assign tasks to a specific group of people. (We will always have the same group assigned to certain types of tasks so it would be nice to be able to quickly add the group instead of individually).

  9. Add a link function - allow file:/// addresses

    Add a link function - allow file:/// addresses. Currently only https:// prefix links are able to be added. When using network drives for project files this doesn't allow us to link directly.

  10. Planner Interface Improvement/New Features


    1. We can Customize the Progress like On-Hold is mandatory for an activity

    2. Customize new Fields to link with Project Management based on Manager's feasibility

    3. Members of the Teams can view all the Activity irrespective of what activity is assigned to them. Also, they can able to change the entire activity which was assigned to them, rather they can able to add only Comments, Status and Tick the Check list not to add/delete it. If Point 2 is addressed, Owner of the Planner can have the flexibility to enable the custom field as Editable for the Plan Members

    4. We can also…

  11. Assignment estimated time and student workload plan

    A great solution would be if in Assignment the teacher could add the estimated time of solving and the time he spent on composing the task.
    Similarly, the student should write down how much time he or she has spent completing the task.
    This data would then be collected in a Sharepoint list and displayed with PowerBI or in Insights.In our school we are most interested in the weekly / daily workload of students all toogether and by diferent subjects.
    Of course, it would be great if you could also read the data from all the Assignment drafts and plan…

    When adding a planner to a team to be able to mark if this is a reoccurring task and to show in the data that it was completed for this day / week or month but as set to reoccurring will automatically reset the task for when it is next due. Also to be able to custom the reminder for reoccurring tasks too

  14. Bi-directional import and export capability (standard data mapping) between MS Planner and MS Project

    As WAgile is a reality in most large organisations, it would be extremely useful if there was a simple and effective bi-directional import and export capability between MS Planner and MS Project i.e. standard data mapping, unlike the current capabilities which are limited, cumbersome and inconsistent in results i.e. it currently takes a lot of data formatting and mapping to make it work, and even then it only "sort of works" from Planner to Project, and not visa versa. This capability should be made a whole lot easier so that personas with little to no technical knowledge can undertake it,…

  17. Allow tasks in Planner to be setup as reoccurring.

    It would be nice to set up reoccurring tasks so you don't have to keep entering on a certain frequency (monthy, weekly, etc0>

  18. please make planner into cards again (or provide the option)

    You guys just changed planner from cards that I could drag between steps and see details easily, into a list of tasks. Its a mess, it is useless. Please give the option to change it back to cards.

  19. Copy a 'master plan' from Planner to an MS Teams channel

    I have created a 'master plan' with multiple buckets, tasks and checklists in Planner, which can be used to run the majority of our projects. However you don't seem to be able to copy this 'master plan' to a new Teams Channel when the channel is created. Having to recreate the exact same plan seems a bit of a nonsense or am I missing something?

  20. Ability to Export all Planner tasks from a channel (or TEAM) to excel

    Purpose - staff can export 1 file & send to managers for reports and updates on projects etc

    Currently we are using TEAM's and keeping a separate spreadsheet that has all the same information, however the spreadsheet can be viewed on the whole.
    If we could simply export an entire channels tasks to show progress for each area of the company that would be ideal! - Having the ability to export using TEAMS app and not just Planner online would be very handy also.
    These MS systems are great, but if we cannot produce large reports while using them it…
